2008 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Our 2008 535i is a rocket ship! The new twin turbo I-6 cranks out 300 hp and 300 lb ft of torque. Matched to a 6 speed sport automatic with paddle shifters, this car hauls! The design is appealingly unique and avoids the cookie cutter quad headlights and triangular taillamps of the Mercedes lineup. The interior is an ode to minimalism but with practical secondary HVAC and stereo controls to compliment the iDrive package. This car provides tremendous performance, the utility of a 5 seater, aggressive style, top notch build quality and solid value. We Came, We Saw, We Bought.

Favorite Features

The fat leather and aluminum trimmed Sport steering wheel with paddle shifters. The 18" multispoke wheels. The aggressively styled tailights.

Suggested Improvements

An in-dash 6 disc CD changer, similar to that offered on the 7 series, would be great. Heated and cooled cupholders and perhaps a drinking water reservoir. Optional brushed metal interior trim instead of just wood. Optional metal trimmed brake, pedal, footrest cluster. LED tailights.
